Aurora Tap House or “The Web,” longtime downtown tavern keeps them coming in

Dan Ardelean, owner of Aurora Tap House, explains why Aurora Tap House continues to bring in crowds after more than 40 years at 134 W. Downer Pl. in downtown Aurora.

Ardelean’s mother and her sisters owned the bar. Their mother, his grandmother, purchased it in July 1978 from Donald M. Saltzman. Ardelean’s aunt, Beverly Bugbee, ran the bar for years.

Aurora Tap House now features 16 beers on tap, Gourmet Pizza, and a variety of nightly events.
